Password Security....should you change it often?

Indeed. I used to work at a place which required monthly password changes
and one could not reuse any of the ten previous passwords or anything "too
similar" to any of them.

The antidote was developed by the guy who beat me to it -- a batch script
which generated eleven random strings, changed the password to each one in
turn, then changed the password back to what it had been.

It would have taken a much sharper IT person than any at that company to see
that users had changed passwords multiple times in less than one minute.
